Height Adjustable DesksFILTER YOUR RESULTS
Height adjustable desks or sit-stand desks can be manually or electronically adjusted to sitting or standing positions, they are designed to enable the user to sit and stand in order to prevent problems associated with sitting for prolonged periods of time. Sitting for long periods every day burns very few calories and studies have linked this to weight gain and obesity. This can lead to an increased risk of diabetes and heart disease with the ‘Sitting is the new smoking’ claim appearing in many recent publications and articles. Although height adjustable desks alone cannot tackle or alleviate these problems it is better for people to have the option to sit or stand as this option encourages movement, which helps and improves blood circulation, alertness, concentration, and productivity. It can also be said if we stand more at work we potentially prevent muscular aches and other back problems which are associated with being static throughout the day.
